New Lincoln arena doesn't plan more Husker gameday parties

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Pinnacle Bank Arena has stopped scheduling free broadcasts of Nebraska football games in part because of complaints from bar owners.  The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( ) Wednesday that arena manager Tom Lorenz says complaints from local bar owners about lost business aren't the only reason no more game broadcasts are scheduled. He added, though, that "nothing happens in a vacuum."  The arena had invited people to watch games for free on giant scoreboard video screens.  Thousands watched Nebraska play Wyoming and Southern Miss.  Lorenz says rumors that the arena made about $25,000 from concession sales at each of the gameday parties were "in the ball park."
